that under obama care health care costs are going to rise while some 44% believe that the quality of care is going to go down. now here's the problem for the president. the financial assumptions in obama care count on a very large group of young healthy people to support the older sicker people who go to the doctor and the hospital more often. trey grayson, the director of the institute of politics, said this has to be very concerning for the white house. >> puts them really behind the eight ball on this. sometimes there's what they call a dust spiral that can take place where the health care act isn't sustainable. we're not there yet, but this shows that there's some real hurdles ahead to try to make this law work. >> greyson says this really is a sea change among the president's core constituents. >> as numbers go, john, in that survey, those aren't the only ones the white house is probably concerned about. >> no. obama care is just one of the headlines. just a couple of other very troubling numbers. one in five people who say that they voted for president obama last year say if they ha
reveals president obama never had a one on one interview with disgraced health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius for three and a half years leading up to the launch of the obama care disaster. peter will join us with that story today. first our top story tonight. there were several important house hearings on capitol hill. all focused on the president's disastrous health care law. let not your heart be troubled. we know you probably couldn't catch up on the hours of testimony. so we put together the highlights for you. >> individuals are losing coverage they are happy with. the doctors with which they are comfortable. this is a tragedy. >> looking forward, the flaws in the law have proved to be getting worse, not better. >> yesterday i logged into the d.c. exchange where members of congress must go and got on error. >> rome wasn't fwhibuilt in a d >> this is people's lives. people are hurt when they can't get medical care. >> i believe the premise for the hearing today is fundamentally flawed. >> people's health care is compromised when they can't get medical care. >>
president obama ran on that campaign, that you can keep your doctor or your health plan if you're willing to pay for more it, i don't think he would have won that argument as well. >> this is the latest tally of health plans canceled in the individual marketplace. 5,960,390. it's on the edge of six million. there's going to be another wave of even more cancellations of employer-sponsored plans next year as the business exemption expires. we'll leave that for another time, charlie. we're out of time. charlie hurt, as always, good to see you. thanks very much. >> thank you, greg. >>> security concerns today as thousands gather to remember "fast & furious" actor paul walker. we're going to take you there live. >>> and mayhem on the campus of michigan state. did you see this? riot police are forced to respond. we're going to tell what you sparked it.

either european health care or nothing. that's a false choice. most would vote him out of office. >> 50 -- >> go ahead. >> 52% of young people would recall the president based on this law. >> and 57% don't want obama care. now you look at another core constituency. we heard after the election about the latino vote in america. look at the latest poll out of gallup. the support of of the president has gone down 23% among hispanic voters. that's a huge discrepancy. from where he was a year ago. >> and the reason -- now this is not obviously a good law for the american people. but politically, the reason why this is valuable is it's exposing the president for what he's about. he's all about making promises that aren't coming true. now people are getting the reality of what barack obama is about in their mailbox. the difference between this scandal and many others is this is affecting millions of people in their bank account losing their doctor, their health care. this is just the beginning. just wait until employers have the option of dumping their insurance and throwing people on these exc
hasselbeck. new details this morning. president obama watched his signature health care plan sink from the sidelines holding only one private meeting with kathleen sebelius in three and a half years. should he have been more involved? we report, you decide. >> it wasn't even private at that. the president pitching obamacare to the young people. >> if you're a bartender, have a happy hour. and also probably get health insurance as a lot of bartenders don't have it. >> that's right, get them tanked
is bad news for president obama across the board on health care policy, 59% of americans disapprove. 37% approve. on the economy, a whopping 65% disapprove. 31% approve. and on immigration policy, 60% disapprove of the president's take, just 32% approve. so you can see the president is standing among americans is at its lowest point ever. the question now becomes can the republican party capitalize in the grand ole party still divided between so-called moderate republicans and committed conservatives. the brawl has been going on for years. and right now the tea party is right in the middle of it. according to real clear politics average, a possible presidential candidates. chris christie a moderate is ahead at 189 percent. conservative rand paul 17%. senator ted cruz 12%. florida senator marco rubio 12%. congressman paul ryan 11%. and jeb bush 10.5%: all these men have a chance to run against hillary clinton in 2016. mrs. clinton is far ahead of any democratic challenger and will remain so. with americans disenchanted by obama care and a bad economy, it would seem the republicans would
a decrease in costs, while one-third would face significant rate increases as a result of obama care. bret. >> jim, thank you. >>> the president's par end up paying a stiff price for obama care. senior political analyst britt has some thoughts on that. >> the president's health reform plan is the stuff of jokes but the plts plit cal consequences will be felt. it's likely to prove the least of the problems. mr. obama's deceptive promise that no one would lose their doctors, hospitals or health insurance has done far greater damage. people simply do not forget such conspicuous acts of bad faith. and many congressional democrats set to face the voters next year echoed mr. obama's false promise and are thus complicit in it. millions of americans have now lost coverage, millions more will. countless others are finding out their doctors or hospitals are not included in the obama care insurance offerings. now, in time obama care will undoubtedly produce some winners, especially those who were previously uninsured or who lost coverage but are able to find new policies at a subsidized price. the pr
is there are provisions in obama care that only take effect if the states establish these health insurance exchanges, only if there is an exchange, quote, established by the state. now those provisions include the subsidies available through exchanges and the employer mandate, the penalties imposed on employers if they don't offer what the government considers adequate health insurance. 34 states said they're not going to create exchanges and the federal government is operating exchanges in those states so that means those provisions by law are inoperative in those states. employers in those 34 states are exempt from those taxes. >> right. >> but what the the obama administration is doing, is the exact opposite of what the law says. the exact opposite. they are issuing the subsidies and imposing those taxes in those 34 states and their rationale for doing the opposite of what the law says is that's what congress intended. >> but wait a second. we have a congress, we can fact check this with the people who pass the law. they're still there. they're sitting in their seats in that domed building. where are t
is still having fun with the failed rollout of healthcare.gov. >> an update on the obama care website that was supposed to provide and online marketplace for health insurance, but instead the website records you having sex and e-mails to your parents with the title christmas surprise. why does it do that? >> all right. the audience cooperate hear it, but we had a debate during that sound bite about robert gibbs' glasses. >> i like them. >> bob doesn't like them. >> it looks like 1954. >> it's retro. i think he looks good. >> the glasses are the least of the white house's worries. you heard the president take address the nation. they're launching this new push, sounded like a new campaign. there is a call to action. there is a political point about not repealing it. he backs republicans. it was campaign number two. >> he's in longer president. he's the ceo of a crisis management firm and this is his disaster. and he's trying to navigate it through. yet he's asking us to come to him to help him. but it's true, it is an offensive. because it's offensive. this whole operation has been off
they could have 6 to 8 million people enrolled for health care. >> as president obama told abc's barbara walters his legacy may depend on it. >> the good thing about when you are down, you have nowhere to go but up. >> the next deadline at the white house is december 23rd. that's the date when people must be enrolled if they want coverage by the first of next year. one top aide told me, our fingers are crossed. john and diana? >> jeff, thank you for that. >>> another washington-based on-line frenzy has been resolved. this one involving picking a new name for the panda cub born in august at the smithsonian zoo. 100,000 on-line voters around the world chose bao-bao which means precious or treasure. >> so cute. >> totally cute. >> the panda cub won't have to brave the elements for sometime but for the rest of you here's a look at the weather. wintry mix of rain and snow will stretch from the pacific norse to the great lakes. other than showers in the carolinas mostly dry everywhere else. >> 30s and 40s in the north, 50s and 60s in me mid section. 60s and 70s across the south. >>> first it w

"fox & friends" starts right now. ♪ ♪ >> the thing about that pole in the subway, i don't even like to touch it with my hands. e

administration's part with the health care website rollout. it's not a surprise that the american people's frustrations with washington are at an all-time high. >> not everyone is buying what he's selling. >> obama things he can repeal reality with receiptry. his trouble is, he has a little bit of trouble governing. he's faced with a management problem. a government problem. he passed a bill that is so complex, the regulations are so complex and contradictory. he's got a website that is not functioning correctly. he thinks if he says the right words, it will change perception. here he runs you against the wall. >> penmeanwhile, politico is reporting that people cybered up on sunday and monday. 29,000. and by the way, that's harry reid. some members of his staff are not among the 29,000 that signed up because they got an obama care exemption. his leadership staff is not going to have to go on the exchanges. the ruling earlier this year xwaif him the option to do so. none of the other leadership offices orks joof john boehner, nancy pelosi and others have done that. what do you think? >> r

of legislation, but a shocking new report finds that president obama held just one official meeting with health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius in the three and a half years before the disastrous obamacare rollout where they were essentially one on one, although tim geithner was in the room. >> he apparently met with 16 other cabinet members 277 times. where are the president's priorities. peter schweitzer joins us with more. his group conducted the survey and has a big op-ed on this. the president said i'm as responsible as many people because i never with the person who was supposed to implement this program. >> as far as executive role it is a colossal failure because this is his signature piece of invitation. you would expect heed have an interest in how tte implementation is going. the records indicate based on his schedule and white house logs they had no intimate one on one meetings concerning the obamacare rollout. >> nobody directly informed me, that would be accurate because he never talked to the person in charge. >> the real question is why did he not have the meeting

people seem to like it, so i'm more prone to say, sounds good. young people made obama look better to older voters. the breach on nsa was so significant because it took away, it shattered that confidence that they had. then when you get into the implementation of the health law, which as tucker points out targets those young voters, it takes from them to give to middle-aged people, those voters respect going to like it. and then when it turns out that the president deceived voters during the re-election campaign be, well, that's enough to take breach into riot. martha: one of the things i find really interesting is the issue of jobs and the economy. now, we had a pretty good jobs number that came out this morning, and that is certainly news that the white house should feel good about. but over the past years, every poll we've looked at, you know, what's your most meaningful topic when you look at -- the economy and jobs. and be yet the president has constantly tried to pull everybody toward health care and convince them that also had a huge impact on the economy. i'm not sure peopl

of why the land of adult children is happening. for example, you have president obama going out and saying k stay on their parents' health insurance until they're 26. last time i checked, we weren't exactly kids or children at the age of 26. many people are homeowners. world war ii was won by people ages 18 to 26. by the time you're 18 you can sign up to fight overseas. by 21 you can drink alcohol. yet all of a sudden we're children able to stay on our parents' health insurance. that is not a good thing. that means we're delaying adulthood and overall a whole generation is now saying i don't know how much things cost. they're not responsible for their actions. >> there are so many young people who are the heart and soul of america doing incredible things in service to this country, in business, in industry, working every day, day in and day out. what is the net effect as we go out this morning of this interest by this administration in making children out of young men and young women? what is the net effect 20 years from now? >> as you mentioned, there are a lot of very young pe
